Brix Challenge 2021

 

“The Brix Challenge 2021”:
A “NON-EVENT” fundraiser for the Humane Society of McDonough County

…NO SCHEDULING CONFLICTS, NO WARDROBE CONCERNS,
NO MENU CHOICES TO MAKE, NO COVID RESTRICTIONS…..

Yet, the biggest event to raise funds for the ANNUAL OPERATING COSTS of the HSMC
and the easiest way to be a part of helping animals in need in our county! What could be better?

Chris Brix is challenging our community to raise the most funds yet for the animals needing assistance in our county. For the 8th year in a row he will match $1,000.00 in donations received between now and October 31, 2021. For the past 7 years this community has met his challenge with enormous support. ANY AMOUNT will be GREATLY APPRECIATED. ALL DONATIONS received will support the important initiatives of the HSMC and will directly help animals in need in McDonough County.

The Brix Challenge :
• is the ONLY challenge that raises funds for the ANNUAL OPERATIONAL COSTS of the HSMC (which ranges between $40,000 & $50,000 per year).
• has been the LARGEST ANNUAL FUNDRAISER for the HSMC’s annual operating costs for the past 7 years, raising a combined total of over $90,000.00 to be used directly for initiatives to improve the lives of animals.
• has been SUCCESSFUL in helping many animals in McDonough County because of GENEROUS SUPPORTERS such as YOU and is an EASY WAY to see your thoughtful gifts of support to the HSMC BENEFITING ANIMALS IN NEED.
• allows the HSMC to PROVIDE MANY SERVICES TO ANIMALS & THEIR FAMILIES on an ONGOING BASIS.

These include:
Promoting adoptions of cats and dogs at the McDonough County Animal Shelter
Providing sponsorships for those “shelter animals” that need more assistance finding forever homes
Reducing pet overpopulation via spay/neuter programs and transports
Continuing enhancements for the comfort of animals at the county animal shelter
Providing medical care to shelter and county animals in need and to prepare shelter animals for adoption
Helping pet owners struggling to keep their pets home via the Pet Supplies Pantry and Angel Fund

The HSMC is a 100% volunteer, State of Illinois not-for-profit organization and a qualified 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, supported entirely on donations and gifts. While much of our work supports the McDonough County Animal Shelter and the animals there, we function as a separate entity from the county animal shelter. We value our partnership with the community members of McDonough County and the support demonstrated by its citizens during our various fundraising efforts. We are committed to furthering our vision to provide humane care and treatment for all cats and dogs in the county, and need continued financial support to do so.
